Hey guys,

Can anyone recommend some app for tracking cashgame results please. After latest partypoker software update it would be really helpful, I understand that the data will have to be entered manually.

Guys this format is really good, I think both of you did great job with the thought process explanations. You nailed all the important aspects of the hands played I think.How many parts are you going to give us?

Hey Phil, can you tell us what strategy will RIO have in order to bring weaker players to the pool? These days games above 2/4 do not run without recreationals as we all know. Majority of other sites get weak players through offering sportsbetting and casino games so i imagine that your team has a sound strategy concerning this matter?

Thanks, enjoy!

Is such a weak field standard on this site? Good job in general, clear comments! Hopefully you ll post a video where you don't run so good in future, so we can have a good discussion;) enjoy!

Hey Phil, that is great news, really hope the project will be succesfull... When are you sharing info about available markets? Is Slovenia included?

Agree with your post Nick, inspired by latest Zach s video;)

Jan. 14, 2016 | 11:25 p.m.

Great job, clear explanation, liked it a lot.

I respect your answer Nick, and I also respect your skills to get more than 25k hands in without playing on any of the 4 mentioned sites at 2knl and having a wr more than 10bb. Most people have problems putting in 30k hands a month at 1k and 600 without those 4 platforms... Keep crushing and gl.

Dec. 21, 2015 | 10:22 p.m.

Nick you say you play 2knl on soft sites...Can you tell us how is it possible to put in decent volume at 2knl if you don t play on stars. Even if you combine 888,Tilt and Party( if you consider these soft) it is very hard to get enough action, so which other sites can you get action at 2knl?

Dec. 21, 2015 | 8:40 a.m.

In current z200 games no decent reg is jamming AJ and KJ here on the river. your flop x/c range looks like AKhh, AA,KK, JJ,TT, QQ maybe JTcc and JTdd and some89hh, 97hh, 68hh ect...good players will be aware that you will check most of your range in this spot OTF, so the problem is that OTT the good players will sometimes run a bluff w Ah and jam river but otherwise they will be aware how strong your range is OTT when Qh comes. they will simply not be bluffing enough here, so you don t have to call this hand OTR necesarry.

Based on which fact do u decide who is a top winner?

Oct. 19, 2015 | 9:57 p.m.

Great job, keep it up! U sure he is z500 reg? Smth wrong here;)

Oct. 6, 2015 | 10:16 p.m.

Like it, solid game and very clear commentary, make this series longer please. What do u think is optimal bb flatting range vs utg, mp 2,5x open vs avg z500 reg? I see that some good regs go up to 25-30%i think this must be negative... Thanks and gl at your sne run;)

Sept. 14, 2015 | 5:49 p.m.

Agree with you that it is really hard to come to right conclusions with R...main variables for R: position, initiative, starting hand strength, agg or pass villain, sizing.

Nick thanks for everything u gave to this community, enjoy!

Kevin this is really great what you are doing, best producer for me also. Keep up the good work, looking forward to future videos! thanks

Feb. 8, 2015 | 11:45 p.m.

Very nice Kevin, great explanation of your thought process and ranges... keep up the good work!

Nick I am very well aware of everything you said, but if we take zoom 500 pool for example. As you know there are still big differences among top players when it comes to oop c betting system. I know that there are few players that could maybe say which strat is best but do you mind giving your opinion about that because I assume you have also put in a lot of work concerning oop c bet? I totaly agree with your 2nd paragraph also, but for example in zoom 500 pool, do you think that polarized 35% oop c bet with well constructed turn and river ranges could have much higher ev than 55% oop c bet which definetly makes your life easier ott and otr like you love to say in the video when you talk about IP c bet strat? Because there are lots of spots where range assymetries are more or less equal...

Mark could you please explain your thought process when making decisions based on WWSF stat including your opinion about what is low/high/optimal wwsf? And also how do you make decisions based on wwsf, wtsd and w$sd combined as a factor?


Dec. 15, 2014 | 11:59 p.m.

Hey Nick,

In the past you mentioned, that you are experimenting with a really low c bet OOP. You said back then that atm you are around 35% and that maybe you will go even lower. I was also working a lot on my oop game with a low c bet so i wonder to which conlucions you came( in your opinion optimal oop c bet with balanced x/c ranges). Did you have any problems with constructing your x/c and x/r ranges with a 35 or lower c bet oop? How high was your flop x/f oop and turn x/f oop while playing this strategy?

Thanks and take care

Yes Dario i think that overbetting turn is a good option since we can do it with a lot of draws/bluffs and his c/r frequency will also be much lower in this case, basically what u said...agree.

turn is standard call for me here, overpair/onepair hands get folded, but i am not sure if it is good to have a jamming range here and how it should look like.

Villain also has very narrow value range here since he probably does not c/r 77,66 OTT, so his river value is only 89 and J8 i think. He does not have anything else for value. And given that both FD s missed he will end up with a lot of bluffs.

Hand History | Maestrrro posted in NLHE: NL 600: bottom of our river calling range
SB: $600
BB: $600
HJ: $864.25
CO: $196.15
BN: $600 (Hero)
villain is new reg on the site, no special reads, what I ve seen so far he is solid.
Preflop ($9.00) (5 Players)
Hero was dealt T Q
HJ folds, CO folds, Hero raises to $12, SB folds, BB calls $6
Flop ($27.00) Q 6 7 (2 Players)
BB checks, Hero bets $18, BB calls $18
Turn ($63.00) T (2 Players)
BB checks, Hero bets $42, BB raises to $150, Hero calls $108
Don t think anything else but calling is better here. Thoughts?
River ($363.00) 9 (2 Players)
BB bets $420
what is the worst hand we call river with, so that we are not overfolding? We do not block any of the FDs , so how should we control our calling frequencies on this particular river? What is the bottom of your jamming range in villain s shoes?

min 27, AQhh: what sizing would you use OTR if your hand was AK on this board texture? very good video btw

July 7, 2014 | 9:15 a.m.

Great video!

June 24, 2014 | 1:32 p.m.

Min 27 you r discussing possible 3bet with 45 of suit from SB vs bu. Don t u 3 bet linear range from SB vs bu? I would be ok with your reasoning if u were in bb, can u explain why u think that 45 of suit was on the borderline of  a 3 bet in that spot?

June 11, 2014 | 11:13 p.m.

Good video Daniel, I think you did great job at explaining spots very clearly. Since you probably covered only about 15 min of footage not to many hard/tricky spots though... Definitely agree with most of your decisions/explanations.

Min6, k6cc: do you think that it is better to choose smaller sizing OTT, it would really suck to get jammed from the recreational player after putting 50bb in this pot. Are you really convinced that betting is better than checking the turn?

Kk hand at the end: I agree with your justification about how poorly we are doing against his 4 betting value range, but I still think that most good regs would call flop and fold turn here. Would like to hear some other top regs what they have to say, but folding flop can t be wrong since we r really only looking for an A and if a 9 comes it sucks.

totally agree with Nick here
